i was riding the train to visit my mom yesterday. ds and i were sitting along the bench seat against the wall of the train and this woman got mad when i wouldnt move ds into my lap. she got so pissed off she lunged down for my ds, i just kicked my foot up and caught her in the face.....everyone was pissed at ME like i should have just let her attack my child, a few people called me racist also (woman was black, im white and native american). ffs should i have just let her grab my child? wtf....

We are not getting the whole story. I'm sure the woman you kicked remembers the incident differently.

thats it, she wanted me to move ds into my lap so she could put her shit on the seats and i ignored her after telling her "not happening" once.

Well you must not have gotten the memo. If you're white, and she's black regardless of how irrational or absurd she is, you are to do exactly as she demands or of course you're a racist. Welcome to Obama's America.

People always retell stories to minimize their own fault and maximize the fault of the other person. We can't give you an accurate assessment of the situation without hearing the other woman's point of view.

obviously, the cops thought she was over the top considering she was arrested and I wasn't. all I did was tell her no and ignore her, she went ballistic and tried grabbing my child. I'm not going to just sit there and let her grab my 4 year old.

Well true. Al Sharpton shares some of the blame as well. They are the two most divisiv, racist " individuals" in this country today.

No, you were right.  People get to sit before personal items and no, she had no right to grab your child.  Unless there is more to this than we are hearing.
